What are your rater guidelines? What is acceptable?
I added a new professor but cannot see his/her ratings yet. Why is the professor name listed in gray? How long will it take before the new professor is approved by the site?
Will a professor know that I have rated him or her?
Don't students use this site just to get even with their professors? Aren't most of the ratings negative?
Why was my comment deleted?
Can I flag a comment or professor rebuttal that I believe should be removed from your site?
How do the scores work? I don't think Easiness is a relevant category. Why is it part of the rating?
I gave a professor a Hot vote but no chili pepper showed up. Why not?
Do you ever share my personal information to third parties?
